    I was a full time L&D nurse for 3 years and then took 2 years off after having a baby.
    I was starting to feel nervous about the gap in my résumé, and my certifications like BLS and ACLS had all expired.
    But I went ahead and applied to a couple local hospitals (we moved to a different state last year)
    I had my first interview Monday and got offered the job today! PRN L&D which is what I wanted (not ready for full time hours yet)
    So it can be done!

    Has anyone ever done this? Do you like it? What's the pay like compared to hospital nursing?

    I'm thinking about applying to my nursing school alma mater to be a part-time clinical instructor in my speciality (Maternity).
    I like it when nursing students are on the floor - it's fun to teach them and I think I would like being an instructor.
    I also teach childbirth education to expecting moms and dads which is a fairly new part-time job for me and I like that too.

    I think I just get bored doing the same thing every day and after almost 2 years at my job, I'm seeking some variety.
    In my ideal world I'd have 3 different part-time or per diem jobs as opposed to just 1 full-time job.
